On Tuesday I casually mentioned my “5 in 5” series starting up soon and it seems to have caught your interest.
Here are the details:
May 24: Ottawa Half Marathon
It’s our National Capital Marathon and it’s a massive event in a beautiful city. A group of my friends are running their first marathon and invited me to shack up with them at a cottage for the weekend. So I figured… I might as well run!
May 31: Toronto Women’s Half
In its inaugural year with promises of a chocolate aid station, fire fighter’s water station and a unique necklace for all finishers, this event sold out months ago. Girls rule. 🙂
June 7: Mud Run
They don’t call it Canada’s Dirtiest 10K for nothing. (See below.)
June 14: Niagara Wine Country Run (10K)
“Runners are invited to explore the stunning vineyards and sample premium wine at the expo, along the picturesque course and at the finish line.”
We’ve booked a hotel for the night with a group of friends and it’s going to be wine-tacular. Something tells me I won’t be setting a PR…
June 20: Toronto City Chase
“The City Chase is a unique urban adventure that requires participants to exhibit teamwork, resourcefulness, determination and the ability to make decisions on the fly as they search for ChasePoints scattered in unknown locations throughout the city. ChasePoints are designed to test teams with a variety of physical, mental, and otherwise adventurous challenges.”
The “Blister Sisters” tore up Toronto last year and we can’t wait to do it again.
Clearly, the “5 in 5” are not typical road races and I’m planning to run every single one for fun. I can’t wait to get started! But for now, it’s a long weekend here in Canada and I don’t have a race on the schedule for the first time in 4 weeks. What am I going to do with myself? (For starters… I’m sleeping in!)
It’s Foto Friday c/o Adventure Seeker so here’s a sneak peak at what I’m getting myself into.
Have a great weekend!
